01:45  6923.6   Hear "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers.

Also sounds like another QSO or station on adjacent frequency.

Signal not much above background static levels... which are pretty high tonight in NE Ohio
never did hear an ID of the station.

Another station on 6924.6 with Beatles "I am the Walrus"

Faint signal in S7 noise floor with some drift.

0142, Johnny Rivers - Secret Agent Man
0145, speech/dialog
0147, Beatles - I Am The Walrus
0152, --- off ---

Couldn't pick out a station ID.
Music was more intelligible than speech.
